Luton Town

‘Big blow’ – These Luton fans react as key player is absent from line-up for Preston clash



Two teams who are at differing ends of the Championship table face-off at Deepdale today as Luton Town make the long journey to Preston North End.

The Hatters currently six in sixth position in the table – shuffling down a place after Queens Park Rangers’ 1-1 draw with Nottingham Forest last night – whilst the Lilywhites are all the way down in 19th.

There’s only six points splitting the two opposing teams today which shows that the Championship is as mad as ever, and Deepdale is a place where Luton have had recent success with a 1-0 victory back in March, which cost then-PNE boss Alex Neil his job.

Quiz: Have each of these 24 ex-Luton Town academy players ever played in the Premier League?

1 of 24

Did Daryl Murphy ever play in the Premier League?

The same could occur here today with Frankie McAvoy under increased scrutiny from North End supporters – on the flip side Luton fans are happy campers with their team on a five-match unbeaten run.

It will not be an easy test in Lancashire for Jones’ side and he was expected to not make too many changes from the team that was successful against struggling Hull City last week.

But there’s a major absentee with top scorer Elijah Adebayo missing out through injury as well as Luke Berry, with Fred Onyedinma dropping out onto the bench – they are replaced by Cameron Jerome, Pelly Ruddock Mpanzu and Kal Naismith.

Luton fans are reacting to the line-up – check out what they’re saying below.
